In an increasingly digitally connected world, study abroad has become a key piece of the American college experience. College graduates who possess the personal, academic, and professional skills that are gained through international experience are at the forefront of their fields, especially in competitive job markets. Study abroad alumni re-enter their home country with broadened horizons, increased comfort in ambiguous and complex situations, and renewed confidence, maturity, and curiosity. Many students also take the opportunity of living abroad to gain language proficiency that cannot be earned inside a classroom.
The Center for Global Engagement strives to make international experiences possible for all students by working with them to find options that fit their academic, personal, and professional goals as well as satisfying major, budget, and timeframe requirements. Beyond finding the classes and locations that are right for students, the CGE is proud to offer international internship, research, service-learning, and volunteering experiences as well.
The University of Tulsa is committed to a price model that makes study abroad affordable. Students who education abroad for a semester continue to pay their TU tuition, with all federal and university financial aid and scholarships transferable (there may be additional fees for appeal programs). See scholarship & finances and the financial policy for details.
